Coal Mine Rescue Day 2

By Jenny Brundin

Huntington, UT – Seismic activity has completely shut down efforts to reach six miners, and frustrated rescuers say it could take up to a week to reach the men if they're still alive. The men are trapped 15-hundred feet underground in the Crandal Canyon mine in the rugged forests of central Utah. The news was hard for residents of the region's mining towns, who say all they can do is wait, hope and pray.
